SCREAM if you canât wait for Halloween.
But here are ways to saveâ.â.â.â
INCY WINCY PRICE TAG: Get some A2 card (Â£1, Hobbycraft) and a marker pen to draw a giant web. Then get the kids to use separate paper to draw their own spiders.
Cut them out, add Blu Tack (Â£1, The Range) on the back and find a makeshift blindfold. Guests just have to pin the spider on the web and the one closest to the centre wins.
A GREAT MUMMY-SAVER: If you have the space, a mummy-binding contest or race is great fun. Kids love using loo roll, but itâs pricey right now, so consider Hobbycraft white crepe.
Two 24-metre rolls are Â£2, so give each team a section, which should be plenty. Get the teams to bind the body and legs of one member then go in the garden for a sack race with a difference. Kids can also wrap each other up, with parents awarding prizes for the best mummies.
CARVE OUT A DEAL: This can bring out the competitive side of your party, so watch out. Prep ahead by grabbing a few medium pumpkins from Aldi, 75p each, slice off the tops and scoop out the flesh â for dinners next week.
Then pop the lids back on and ensure everyone has access to marker pens or a Wilko pumpkin carving kit, Â£1.20. Play it safe and add a battery-powered tea light from The Works, Â£1 for four, with batteries included. Creepiest face wins.
CHEAP SHOT IN THE DARK: Adults love beer pong. Put cups of booze on a table, divide into teams, then try to lob ping-pong balls into your opponentsâ cups. If these land, your opponents drink.
Make it kid-friendly by using different soft drinks and some black and red food dye â Dr Oetker strong food colouring gel is now Â£1 instead of Â£1.50 with a Tesco Clubcard.
